Time Song
by Geoffrey Heptonstall

The music of living:
the ethereal sensation
is the song of happenstance
to sing something of itself
now in the incidental moment.

In time a caged bird will be free.
The syncopation is natural,
dancing down the winding stair,
a rhythm that alerts the heart
with every measured beat.

In search of elusive harmony
songs rise with the sun,
remembered through the dark hours
summoning the will to be heard
sometimes here, at other times there.
The sound surrounds us.
